Huffines Institute


Since our beginning, the Huffines Institute’s mission has evolved to connect exercise scientists, practitioners, and the public to help spread the word that activity and exercise are the cheapest and most efficient forms of disease prevention and symptom alleviation. We believe that the Institute’s mission will lead not only to better athletes, but also to better health in the general public. That’s one of the reasons that we not only have an extensive mission to help athletes become better performers, but also why our public outreach efforts through our podcasts, Hilliard Discussions, and online text articles continue to be viewed by users around the world.
